#BookReview of Blackbird by Anna Carey


Blackbird (Blackbird, #1)


About the Book: 

From the author of the Eve trilogy comes the breathless story of a girl racing to figure out who she is—and how to stay alive. When a nameless girl wakes up on the subway tracks, she knows only one thing for sure: people want her dead. Can she find them before they track her down? This pulse-pounding contemporary thriller is perfect for fans of The Maze Runner, The Darkest Minds, and Legend.

Things I Know Are True: 


I am in Los Angeles
I woke up on the train tracks at the Vermont/Sunset station
I am a teenage girl 
I have long black hair
I have a bird tattoo on the inside of my right wrist with the letters and numbers FNV02198
People are trying to kill me

My Review: I really struggled with this book and it's because it's written in 2nd person. It was so hard to read. I really wanted to like this book because I thought it sounded really good. The characters themselves were a bit bland. Her friendship with Ben came across as a bit too quick and convenient.We are left with more questions than we started with. And I was hoping for a more exciting ending than what it was. It was so disappointing, flat, and there are some cliche pieces.

Do I Recommend this book? I just can't...
